From the Adafruit Forums: Custom Solar LiPo Charger

Adafruit customer calibur010011 showed off his newest creation on the forums.  He packed our Solar Lithium Ion/Polymer charger and MintyBoost into a nice custom laser cut enclosure.

I finally completed my project to use Adafruit Industries mintyboost with their li-poly solar-charger into one neat enclosure. I even built and designed a status circuit to fit the case easily activated with a button push.

USB / DC / Solar Lithium Ion/Polymer charger – v1.0. Make your projects to go green this summer with our specialized USB/Solar Lithium Ion Polymer Battery charger! This charger is a very unique design, perfect for outdoor projects, or DIY iPod chargers. We’ve spent over a year testing and tinkering with this charger to come up with a plug and play solution to charging batteries with the sun and we’re really pleased with what we ended up with.

Easy to use! Pick up any of our many 3.7V/4.2V LiIon batteries, and a 6V solar panel. Plug the battery into the BATT port using a 2-pin JST cable and the solar panel into the DC jack using a 2.1mm terminal block adapter. Put the solar panel outside (and keep the battery out of the sun, it needs to be kept shaded!) to start charging. You can power another project like a Mintyboost at the same time by connecting to the LOAD output port.
